Glad to here, they're beefing up the WHL/Western staff, but in general it really makes you question their eye for talent, if they keep going after these high midget picks (Steven Anthony, Yann Sauve etc) or late bloomers (Mallet and Grenier). Doesn't the WHL churn out more players than any of the leagues in the CHL (at least going to that well more often improves the probability of getting at least an NHL contributor....Q league seems like a swing for the fences, boom/bust well to draw from).
It was posted here that the percentage conversion from the Q is just a bit behind the WHL. So it shouldn't be dismissed.
